Beautiful bedroom in a historic home with wood floors, two comfortable single beds and large shared bathroom.

Must love dogs (albeit non-shedding). Less than two miles from downtown Charleston and the interstate in a safe, quiet, residential neighborhood. This is one of two bedrooms we rent out from our house.

The space

The space includes two twin bed and a desk, dresser, and closet. Perfect for both long and short stays or as overflow from the double room.

Guest access

The guest has access to the whole house, including kitchen privileges. There is also a lovely, large backyard, wrap around deck and front porch, which the guest is welcome to use.

Interaction with guests

I work full-time, but am always available by phone. I'm happy to show you around Charleston on the weekends or point you in the right direction!

Other things to note

Please, please communicate what time you will be here. Check-in is 4pm-10pm, which means we can be available within those times. It does NOT mean we will be waiting from 4pm-10pm for you to get here (we have to run errands, walk dogs, go to the gym etc. in the evenings as well). We understand that things come up, but if your schedule changes let us know as soon as it does so we aren't waiting around. Check-in is LATEST 10:00pm unless you have made prior arrangements with us before your booking.

The washing machine and dryer are available to guests who stay a week or more.

We do not provide coffee or breakfast, but guests are welcome to make their own.

We have three dogs: two goldendoodles and a standard poodle. None shed and are considered "hypoallergenic" breeds. The dogs have free range of the house (but not your room) and are very, very friendly. They are low-key and will leave you alone unless you want to be snuggled with.

The location was great. I was able to get on and off the interstate quickly. The home was nice and warm feeling. My objection was to eat, shower and go to sleep. Mission accomplished The dogs were sweet. Austin was very accommodating. The dogs were sweet. I woke up to the smell of coffee in the morning. We would definitely stay there again. The experience was great!

I had a great stay at Kara & Austin's place. I was late checking in due to a slow leaking tire that needed to be fixed mid-trip. Kara still welcomed me even though I was almost an hour late. The room was nice and the bed was comfortable.

This beautiful home was only a few minutes from downtown but we felt like we were in the country. Our room was quite comfortable, the hosts were friendly, and the dogs were adorable.

There is a Kuerig available for in the morning. They provide towels for the shared bathroom. The bed I stayed in was very comfortable. Plenty of nice handwritten signs are up around the house as friendly reminders.

Kara and Austin's place was perfect for our mid-road trip overnight. The space was clean and had all of the amenities we needed. It was close to the highway so we could get going again first thing in the morning. Kara and Austin were super friendly as well and gave great suggestions for where to grab a bite to eat. I'd definitely stay with them again.

Kara & Austin User ProfileKara & Austin is a superhost.

(Kara) I am a regional journalist based in Charleston, West Virginia. I love good coffee, my two dogs, hiking, traveling, vegetarian food, chocolate and practicing yoga.

(Austin) I am a pediatric nurse. I have a terrible sweet tooth and am NOT vegetarian, but do eat vegetarian most of the time with Kara =). I love the water and would happily spend all day in a hammock by the sea.
